FUJIFILM FINEPIX 3.1 MEGA PIXELS DIGITAL CAMERA A120

I'm debating on getting it, should I? I don't have all that much money left though.

Works fine. Records pictures.

O.o

Its kind of open ended after that. I suggest reading some of the many posts about 'what should I buy for a camera?' threads....

Or, you can ask maybe for comparisons, or what you want to use it for, what you want to do with the pictures...

Other than that, the digicam world is largely subjective...

The question is too broad. Define "home pictures." What do you plan on using the camera for in the home? Are you planning to make prints with the images made onthe camera?

There is a wealth of information out on the internet, but you need to have a better understanding of what you want your potential camera to do.

Does that other camera take normal batteries you can buy in the store or use its own special batteries? If it uses normal batteries, you should buy more batteries instead of buying a separate camera.

If you're going to shoot some simple cosplays at home and post them to the web at 640x480 and don't care too much about the image details, just about any 3.1 megapixel camera will do.

its own special batteries, but I need them for over the summer because I'll be at conventions overseas XD.

But I like image detail....

Image detail will only be a significant problem if you try to print your images out on big photo paper. 3.1 megapixels will be fine for posting on web pages. I have a 3.2 megapixel camera, and I can't see any problems on most of my images.

I can't even find this A120 for sale. It looks like it has been discontinued. If so, the camera should not be expensive, I hope.
